“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. |Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; |Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. | There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. |God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. |The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. |The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. |Come, behold the works of the Lord, what desolations he hath made in the earth. |He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. |Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. | The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. “
If theology is the word for God-talk, what then is the word for God-silence?

A Promise from Jesus, from God.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
Based in Houston, TX and founded by Allen White in 2015, Nexus Prayer International serves as a Christian contemplative prayer ministry, advocate for “the least of these”, proponent of Franciscan spirituality, and home of the Hermitage Library of Saint Francis.
Deeply rooted in Psalm 46:10, nexus prayer is the biblically-based, contemplative prayer that increases the awareness of God’s presence in our lives, while also helping us to better hear His “still, small voice” in a busy and noisy world.
Through the stilling of our soul, the quieting of our mind, the letting go of our problems, and the total surrendering of our will to God, nexus prayer leads us to “the peace of God that passes all understanding.”
